We are Temples of the Holy Spirit | Image: PixabayJesus brings us a message that is startling and new: Each of us is called to be the dwelling place of God. Saint Paul, in his Letter to the Corinthians, says, “Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that God’s Spirit dwells in you? God’s temple is holy, and you are that temple.” These are strong words! Jesus says, I dwell in you and you in me.” This is radically new. We are, each one of us, the dwelling place of God.
